Nancy Lynn Ebert (nee Demme), 70, died at home on Aug. 17, 2022 with her husband Steve by her side. Born on Oct. 24, 1951, she was a longtime resident of River Forest and a dedicated Operating Room nurse and Organ Procurement coordinator for West Suburban Hospital, Rush University Transplant, and Rush SurgiCenter.

She loved elegant entertaining, family, friends, partying, dancing, making and gifting her famous strawberry jam, gardening, cooking and giving gifts, always taking great pains to choose the right gift. She also loved all dogs and enjoyed playing Scrabble on the beach, and her favorite color was pink.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Dorothy Demme; her brother, Tom; her son, Scott; and her first husband, Roman Ebert III. She leaves behind her husband, Dr. Stephen Jensik; her son, Roman IV; and her daughter, Jaime. She was the grandmother of Andy, James, Alex, Niko and Gabe and stepmother of John and Jennifer. She is also survived by many “nieces and nephews” who loved and respected her, especially her smiles and hugs.

Visitation was held on Aug. 26 at Zimmerman-Harnett Funeral Home. Donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are appreciated.
